Ashtead expands UK team with new appointment

Ashtead Technology, a provider of subsea technology and equipment, has added to its UK team with the appointment of Graeme Booth as a regional technical support leader.

The company said on Monday that Booth joined Ashtead from Subsea 7 where he held technical support and offshore operational roles, including survey equipment superintendent.

Booth will provide customers with technical support from his Aberdeen base covering equipment rentals and custom engineered packages, for survey and ROV operations.

Ashtead noted that Booth’s position has been created in response to increased customer demand for outsourced integrated technical support from the initial pre-bid stage through to offshore execution, ensuring projects are delivered on time and within budget.

Allan Pirie, chief executive of Ashtead Technology, said: “Our customers are increasingly looking to their suppliers for ways to minimize technical and operational risks and drive down costs. Graeme will be integral to driving this forward, supporting our existing customers, developing new business opportunities and growing our service offering.”

Booth added: “I look forward to playing my part in the next phase of the company’s growth, as it looks to enhance its range of value-added services to support customer projects globally.”
